Stunning Salamancan retreat

  • 4 of 5

The three bedroom, two bathroom, living room and patio were perfect for the needs of 5 academics visiting Salamanca. This was a comfy home-away-from-home base to work from. Airconditioning was lovely, the fans in the bedrooms kept us cool all night. Comfy beds, ample linen and towels. Washing machine and clothes line were great.

The plumbing in the middle bathroom is old but not a big deal and we couldn't get the oven top to work so we bought a jug to boil water for cups of tea. But realistically, we didn't need to cook at home. We ate out every night or had a cold platter on the deck watching the sun set. We would definitely come here again. In a heart beat!!!!!!

Pefecto! We can't wait to return!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay--the penthouse is ideally located, and we enjoyed our time there, and the view from the terrace. We rely heavily on the reviews of previous visitors, and they were spot on. I will highly recommend this property to friends and family--and hope that we won't all want to stay there at the same time.

The owners are warm and helpful, and provided excellent service. They recommended restaurants, which we ate at, and they were the best we ate at in Salamanca. We look forward to our next stay.

We can't wait to return to Salamanca and this wonderful apartment. It is even better than the fotos. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen well stocked, all was very clean and the location ideal. The nearby shops and cafes were great and the historic section a short walk. This is a wonderfully relaxing place to start and end a day visiting the sites.

Rosa was there to greet us and show us around.

Cristina and Ali were great hosts en absentia, answering my pre-trip questions.

We were 6: 5 adults and a 7 yr old and we all agree: we chose the perfect place to stay.

Wonderful Stay

Everything was great! The booking process was easy, the check-in was seamless (Rosa was great) and the apartment was perfect for our extended family of 6. The location is excellent, the rooms were comfortable and the apartment was equipped with everything we needed. Thank you for a wonderful stay! We will definitely stay again the next time we are in Salamanca!

Perfect Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect stay in this beautiful penthouse apartment! Our family of 6 spent 5 days in this beautiful apartment in the heart of Salamanca. The description and photos were an accurate representation of the property. Al and Cristina were awesome hosts who communicated with me regularly and clearly via email before and during our trip, even offering up suggestions for sites to see and places to eat. We took full advantage of the kitchen and the closest supermarket is only 1 block away. The property was very clean and beautifully appointed. Shopping and dining opportunity start right outside the front door. Only 2 blocks away is the start of Calle Toro which leads into the enormous pedestrian-only shopping, dining and residential district of the city. At its heart is Plaza Mayor which is magnificent both day and night. Don't miss the Cathedral and the University - they are spectacular. Also, stop and see the Casa de las Conchas. These are just a few of the sights that Salamanca has to offer. Salamanca has a vibrant night life. Tapas and bar hopping is a must and we never ate or drank in the same place twice, choosing to try something new each time. We explored the city day and night by foot and always felt safe. The local people were friendly and welcoming. Salamanca is a hidden Spanish treasure and this property provides an excellent home away from home for your explorations!

Good choice for a Salamanca Stay

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is very conveniently located: it is situated on a commercial street just outside the central historic area of Salamanca (about a 15-20 minute walk form the Plaza Mayor), with a wide range of stores (supermarket, bakery, department store, etc.) within a block or two.

The apartment itself is spacious, with a large living/dining area and three full-sized bedrooms that easily accomodate 5 people. It is well-furnished. The living/dining area is very cozy and opens out on a terrace with a great view of Salamanca. (it was too cold/rainy in March to sit out and enjoy it, but imagine it fantastic later in spring/fall.) The three bedrooms were all quite comfortable and the kitchen has enough pots/pans/utensils etc. to be truly functional.

Checking in/out was easy to arrange and the person who met us at the apartment got us quickly acquainted with the apartment.

There were some minor problems. There was a persistent odor in one of the bathrooms, which the owners indicated was going to be addressed. Also, the neighbors were quite loud during the day and there was limited soundproofing in the shared wall. But these issues were small. Overall, we were quite pleased with our stay here!
